It's Good To See Old Friends

A couple of weeks ago, I wrote a post about a letter we (the girls) received from Hudson, the son of some very good friends of ours, Laurie and Errick.  Errick has been battling cancer for over a year now and he's one of the strongest people I know.  He just celebrated his 34th birthday.  So, me and a few of his oldest friends, traveled to Grand Rapids to spend the weekend with him and celebrate another year of his life.

It was also a great opportunity to catch up with Laurie, get some updated pics of Hudson, and check out the house they just built.  Not to mention, a perfect way to catch up with friends that I only get to see about once (sometimes twice) per year.  Play a little cards.  Have a few drinks.  Re-live stories that we've told time and time again that never get old or any less funny.

Errick, we sure are glad you're here buddy.

Hudson, navigating his iPad like a pro.  No joke, it's definitely a learning tool, too.

Showing mom where California is on the map.

He knows the name and location of every state, though I can foresee an argument with a teacher coming when she tries to tell him that Alaska isn't an island SW of California.

...and athletic, too!

Conquering the stairs.

Stealing a hug from dad.

Rob, getting loosened up for a vigorous round of poker.

Rob and Wes, trying equally hard to figure out what each other have.

A disinterested Nelson, eagerly searching for the latest version of Angry Birds.

Chin up Steve. Chin up.

Everyone rallying for a night on the town
